|Dec-26-04|| ||capablancakarpov: Oleg Korneev is one of my favourite players.A true communist,survives playing a lot of small tournaments in Spain with other survivors like him ( Kurajika,Pogorelov,Campora),and giving chess classes.Is married with WGM Tatiana Kononenko,who frequently plays in the same tournaments that her husband.Korny is the most profilic chess player of the world,and perhaps of history.In 2001 he played 185 games,in 2002 194 games,in 2003 227 and in 2004 he has established an astonishing mark of 251!!! games played.He is one of the active players with more tournament wins,and his real elo strenght is around 2640,but he plays without rest, alternating spectacular victories with disastrous tournaments,bad,but necessary if he wants to survive. |
|Jun-20-05|| ||WTHarvey: Here are some puzzles from Oleg's games: http://www.wtharvey.com/korn.html|
|Jun-20-05|| ||stijn: how do you know all this?|
|Jun-20-05|| ||capablancakarpov: Because iīm a fan !!!!|
|Jan-01-06|| ||capablancakarpov: Korneev gained an astonishing 50 points in 56 games, and is placed 57th of the world, with 2649 elo points. With " The elevator " you never know, maybe he will reach the 2680s, maybe he will drop to 2550 points....|
|Mar-31-06|| ||Mameluk: Hmm, yes. Korneev is surprise of the April list with his 2671 rating.|
|Apr-10-06|| ||capablancakarpov: Indeed, 34th of the world, 22 elo gain points in 79 games !!!. Korny is so prolific that i donīt notice half of the tournaments he plays, some in Spain, some in France, others in Morocco...|
|Apr-23-06|| ||DutchDunce: Evidently we missed the battle of the Korns today at the Russian championship: Kornev vs. Korneev. The game was drawn. Korny!|
|Jun-07-06|| ||capablancakarpov: Jo Jo, good joke! :-)|
|Jun-07-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Oleg Korneev
|Jul-15-06|| ||rustamrocks: Korneev wins 17th edition of the Benasque Open scoring 8.5/10 points. Congratulations to him!|
|Jul-25-06|| ||oao2102: <capablancakarpov> <"A true communist"> Whaa??|
|Aug-24-06|| ||capablancakarpov: Yes, in his interviews he always criticizes the Spanish Conservative Party, PP, Franco followers,who sistematicaly stop organizing chess tournaments when are in the government,because chess makes you think by yourself and be more intelligent, and this is something that the Capitalist and Conservative partys canīt let. By the way, he also accused Morozevich of give positive in an antidoping control, and Vallejo of the use of computers while playing, both cases checked by himself,and complains of the lack of punishments against this players.
Also, he is the player with more tournaments victories in chess history, with more than 300 ( Karpov has 160 ).|
|Oct-20-06|| ||capablancakarpov: The Magistral Ciutat de Barcelona-Casino takes place 19th-27th October 2006. In the tournament of XIV category play: Ivanchuk Vassily g UKR 2741, Bologan Viorel g MDA 2659, Korneev Oleg g RUS 2657, Dominguez Lenier g CUB 2655, Granda Zuniga Julio E g PER 2646, Peralta Fernando g ARG 2574, Timman Jan H g NED 2565, Narciso Dublan, Marc g ESP 2511, Lopez Martinez Josep Manuel m ESP 2508, Lacasa Diaz Jose Antonio m ESP 2410.|
Yesterday Korneev obtained another big victory, perhaps the best of his amazing career, destroying Ivanchuk with black pieces in 26 moves, in the first round of this tournament. Check here the game:
|Dec-15-06|| ||capablancakarpov: I love this man. The past week he played the 1st Granada Open, a 9 round Swiss open tournament in the south of Spain, in which he finished second, gaining 1500. The tournament finished Sunday 10th at 14.00. Then, he took his car, and with his beautiful wife WGM Tatiana Kononenko, who usually plays the same tournaments that his husband, drove 10 hours to arrive to Elgoibar,Basque Country, North of Spain, 800Km of distance. Then, a brief sleep and Monday morning the XVI Elgoibar Tournament started, 9 rounds in a week, with double rounds two days. So Korneev would have play 18 games in 16 days. Astonishing. He only drew the first four rounds against inferior opponents due to fatigue ( his wife only scored half point ), but has recovered and won his last two games. He will lost elo points, but will gain some money to pay the bills. In 5 or 6 years, he will be the most prolific chess player of all time surpassing Korchnoi if continues playing 300 games per year...
Truly a legend.|
|Oct-01-07|| ||capablancakarpov: Korneev tied his own world record with 79 games in 92 days in the past 3 months. By the way, he gained 22 points, and the elevator is once again climbing to the top 100.|
|Jan-14-08|| ||capablancakarpov: Korneev beat his own world record with 80 games in 92 days, gaining 58 elo points and climbing to the 70th spot in the world list. His score over the past 3 months was an impressive +58-1=21. When Korneev is hot is unstoppable. He won 6 tournaments in this period, increasing is tournament wins to more than 300 ( also a world record ). The legend of this man continues to grow.|
|Sep-23-10|| ||bravado1: capablancakaropov, I don't think you're his fan. I think that you find it amusing that this guy ruins his health and plays so many tournaments in order to make ends meet. Why? the general tone of your posts, the sums of money he earned you count, etc. Even the "amazing" number of games he plays every month or year make you laugh. Well, if you're lucky and very rich, good for you. Not everybody is rich, though, and not everybody can play like Kasparov or Anand to earn a milion dollars for one tournament, very few people are world champions. Or perhaps you fancy his wife, and that's the problem?|
|Sep-30-10|| ||GrahamClayton: Interview:
|Apr-29-11|| ||lost in space: <<Oleg Korneev>: "He also says that FIDE is completely rotten and shows no signs of getting any better.">|
Seems that FIDE is not better than FIFA. Even Maffia seems to better.
|Dec-25-12|| ||capablancakarpov: <bravado1> I personaly know Oleg, and respect it. I try to wide the knowledge of his achieves, so they receive little to no attention. So, donīt make supositions, and get a life.|
|Jul-04-13|| ||PhilFeeley: Good interview on Chessbase recently:
We should be discussing his recent game with Borislav Ivanov, but unfortunately, the game is not here yet. There's lots of discussion of this on Boris's page.
|Jul-04-13|| ||Dionysius1: What a weird discussion at the link <PhilFeeley> gives! Surely to goodness 12.3 prohibiting the use of sources of information can safely be taken to include computers! And yet the two discutants agree immediately it doesn't do so clearly enough.|
